John Wall Nets First Career Triple-Double

In only his sixth NBA game, John Wall earned his first career triple-double. He finished the night with 19 points, 13 assists, and 10 rebounds on his way to becoming the third youngest player in NBA history to record a triple-double.

The Breakdown
John Wall has certainly lived up to the hype and he's putting a smile on the faces of the owners who drafted him. Wall has now cracked the top 15 in FBB's player rater and could stay close to the top of our ratings for the entire season as long as he doesn't hit the dreaded "rookie wall."

We thought the return of Gilbert Arenas would hurt Wall's value, but it appears head coach Flip Saunders is content using Arenas as a sixth man playing about 25 minutes a night while continuing to give the rookie huge minutes. As long as this trend continues, Wall will continue to be a fantasy stud.
